1960s Universal Geneve Polerouter gold cap

Universal Geneve Polerouters have finally all the attention they deserve. These watches are awesomely designed, hold a great movement, revolutionary at its time, ans look perfect on any wrist.

This cool example features a gold cap (also call gold on steel) case. These kind of cases are made of steel and covered by a thick layer of gold. Unlike on gold plated watches, the case will remain golden and will not display the inner metal. A gold polerouter for the price of a steel one.
